Rick Perry Launches Second Presidential Bid

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry launched his second bid for the Republican presidential nomination on Thursday, pledging to "end an era of failed leadership," and hoping this campaign will go better than his last one. Perry announced his candidacy in a humid airport hangar among fellow veterans and a hulking C-130 the cargo plane, like one he flew for the U.S. Air Force. He is one of few veterans in a bustling Republican field short on military experience.
